On our CT600 we are unable to calculate the correct amount

This answer was rated:

On our CT600 we are unable to calculate the correct amount for Box AC215 - Opening Balance on the P&L Statutory Notes and get errors for Boxes AC218/AC187 as a result.
How do we calculate the correct amount?

Hello, if you have any questions or need further clarification after reading my answer please let me know.


Thank you for your question...


Please advise if it is your second or subsequent year of operation?

If so, did you file CT600 last year..

Assuming the answer to both is yes... then lets say this year is 2013, last year is 2012 and the one before that is 2011.


I wish to know what you have stated in Profit and loss account Box AC74/AC75 for year 2012 and 2011


Many thanks
